Question about Barco iQ G500 Multimedia Projector
I replaced the lamp of the projector but the counter is still there.
How do I reset the counter?
Reseat the lamp. I had a similar problem. Replaced the lamp and everything worked for about 3 hours. Then, turned the projector off. Next morning, when I turned it on, nothing. Stanby/On light flashed green for a minute then the lamp light came on and the projector went into standby.

Press and HOLD the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV
Press and HOLD the MUTE button on the REMOTE
(hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen)
Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV
We suggest writing your lamp hours on a peice of masking tape and taping it to the back the TV for future reference.
To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrove buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter For certain models, you might have to tweak these steps slightly…offer your inputs!

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS3.
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter
This is required, to reset the lamp timer.
Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.
